The Czech Helsinki Committee, a nonprofit organization with a more than 30 year tradition, has established a bank account for donations in support of the family of Stanislav Tomáš, who died after an intervention by police on 19 June in Teplice. "In recent weeks, Stanislav Tomáš's loved ones have had to address many complicated situations and have had to make decisions about the unclear circumstances of his death while facing interest and pressure from the media, the police, and members of the broader public, who are justifiably interested in his sudden death and are calling for a thorough, impartial investigation of the entire case," said director Lucie Rybová, who also announced that she has donated CZK 15 000 [EUR 600] to the family; news server Romea.cz is publishing the call for donations in full translation below.  

Call for financial support to the family of the tragically deceased Stanislav Tomáš 

Dear Colleagues, Friends and Fellow Citizens,

Please allow us to contact you with this request to send financial support to the family of Stanislav Tomáš, who tragically died in police custody in Teplice and has left behind family members - his mother and sister - who, in addition to coping with their own great sorrow and with medical problems, are also having to deal with many unexpected difficulties that are quite personally burdensome to them.

BANK ACCOUNT FOR DONATIONS TO THE FAMILY OF STANISLAV TOMÁŠ: 2542779329/0800
List the name of the donor if you would like it known
Purpose of the gift:  "Pomoc rodině Stanislava Tomáše" (Aid to the family of Stanislav Tomáš)

FOR DONATIONS FROM OUTSIDE THE CZECH REPUBLIC PLEASE SEND TO:

  • The Czech Helsinki Committee  
  • Name of the bank: Česká spořitelna, a.s. Štefanikova 17, 150 000 Prague 5, The Czech Republic   
  •  Account number: 2542779329
  • Swift Code/BIC: GIBACZPX
  • IBAN (International Bank Account Number): CZ67 0800 0000 0025 4277 9329

In recent weeks the loved ones of Stanislav Tomáš have addressed many complicated situations and had to make decisions about the unclear circumstances of his death, and they have been facing interest and pressure from the media, the police, and members of the broader public who are justifiably interested in his sudden death and calling for a thorough, impartial investigation of the entire case

In addition to all of the above, the bereaved family members of Stanislav Tomáš have enormous existential worries and do not have enough money to hold a dignified funeral, to fix up the burial site, or for many other essential costs that have to be covered in association with the effort to achieve justice in this case. The estimated amount of money needed by the family at this time is about CZK 60 000 [EUR  2 350]. This is no small amount, but if many people join us we believe we can raise the necessary finances for the family.        

The director of the Czech Helsinki Committee, Lucie Rybová, is informed in detail of the complicated situation around Mr Tomáš's loved ones and has donated CZK 15 000 [EUR 600] to cover the first expenses the family has recently incurred.  

Given the genuinely extremely demanding living situation in which the deceased's mother and sister find themselves (and the necessity of acting quite quickly), the Czech Helsinki Committee has decided to express our support for the bereaved by aiding the family of Mr Tomáš with raising the necessary financing (in addition to making public statements about this entire matter and calling for the police intervention to be investigated) and we are also arranging for them to receive, free of charge, the necessary personal support they require from psychologists, social workers, lawyers, etc.    

If you would like to express your solidarity and participate in helping the family and loved ones of Stanislav Tomáš, you can also best do so by making a financial gift. 

Please send your donation to this account: 2542779329/0800, list the donor's name, and list the purpose of the gift as "Pomoc rodině Stanislava Tomáše" (Aid to the family of Stanislav Tomáš).

If you list your name, we will publish the names of donors and the amounts of money donated on our website.

We very much thank you, on behalf of all the bereaved, for each financial contribution you make to the family.

Lucie Rybová
Director
Czech Helsinki Committee
